|"Sweet, heady, and complex. A perfect happy hour tea! "|
I would call it "Wǎnshàng jiāoxiǎngyuè," or "evening symphony." The taste was like being at an outdoor symphony on a cool evening, wrapped in a plaid blanket. It was cozy. It was sweet. It was complex and it had bright, brassy moments.
Thepuri Tea promised it would taste like so many things I love: sweet potatoes, chocolate, raisins, pumpkin, brown sugar...brandy! Who needs alcohol or sweets?
Not me! This tea was love at first sight-and sniff. The leaves were golden-brown coils that smelled like everything thepuri Tea (TpT) claimed. After steeping two teaspoons per 8 ounces of not-quite-boiling water, I was rewarded with a rich, amber brew that emitted intense olfactory notes of chocolate and sweet potatoes. The raisins and brandy joined the chorus after two or three minutes of steeping.
TpT made good on its promises with this tea. I rate it a 9.5.
